Would you believe that it is possible to maintain urinary continence among residents with end-stage dementia? The author of the article on which this program is based can attest to it.

Most practitioners have mistaken ideas about the inevitability of urinary incontinence as we age. That notion extends to the general public and is reinforced by advertisements for incontinence pads. However, research shows that urinary incontinence is treatable, often without pharmacologic intervention, especially if assessments are routinely made by registered nurses and behavioral interventions implemented.

This program outlines the myths and the science related to urinary incontinence, and steps you can take to assess, improve and maintain continence among your client population. The 60 minute program features interviews with Dr. Specht, nurses working in long-term care settings, a physical therapist, and a resident with urinary incontinence.
